Klaus, Grant Morrison’s “Santa Claus: Year One” coming November from BOOM! 

BOOM! Studios have released more details about their previously announced Grant Morrison-written series Klaus, described as “Santa Claus: Year One.”

Promising to change the way we view Jolly Old Saint Nick forever, Morrison spoke with his trademark passion about the series, saying “Klaus is the story of our hero’s greatest challenge and how he overcame it.”

He added, “This is the tale of one man and his wolf against a totalitarian state and the ancient evil that sustains it. Part action thriller, part sword-and-sorcery, part romance, part science fiction, Klaus has given us free rein to revamp, reinvent and re-imagine a classic superhero for the 21st century. He’s making a list and he’s checking it twice. This Christmas it’s all about psychedelic shamanism, anti-authoritarian guerrilla gift-giving, and the jingle bells of freedom!”

BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon spoke about the series, which will focus on the Viking origins of the character and feature artwork from Dan Mora, saying “Grant has injected new life into superheroes time and again over the course of his career, so when he said he wanted to reinvent Santa Claus into a powerful rebel hero, we were immediately onboard.”

He added, “This is a huge subject to tackle; everyone knows some version of Santa Claus. Grant has taken the coolest and creepiest parts of the Santa Claus legends from all over the world and molded it into a story that’s mythic and full of visceral wonder. It takes a talented artist to keep up with Grant’s ideas, and I can tell you that Dan Mora is not only up to the task, but has run wild with this story.”

Klaus #1 (of 6) arrives in comic shops on November 4th with a main cover by series artist Dan Mora for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code SEP151100. Also available in a limited quality is a 10 Years incentive cover by Felipe Smith (All-New Ghost Rider), a Jackpot variant cover by Frazer Irving (2000 AD), and a retailer incentive cover by Chris Burnham (Batman Incorporated.
